I sent my 11 year old off to play hockey tonight with my hubby and sat down to take my mind off my frustration with his youth baseball program, when I saw this:

The National Hockey League and the NHL players assocation has announced a partnership with the You Can Play Project.

You Can Play, launched in Boston by Patrick Burke, is an advocacy group that fights homophobia in sports...

Speaking on the partnership Burke stated, "The NHL sets the standard for professional sports when it comes to LGBT outreach and we are incredibly grateful for their help and support.  We will work with the League and the NHLPA officials, teams and players to ensure that we create a more inclusive hockey community at all levels.
